‘Heartfelt and unambiguous, often straight-up tuneful, the music of Glaswegian composer, folk scholar and socialist Eddie McGuire hasn’t always had the attention it deserves – which makes this survey of chamber works doubly lovely. McGuire’s language takes in minimalism and Romanticism, tango and Gaelic psalms, fiddle tunes and modernism, but the final mix is unfussy and organic’ — Kate Molleson, Guardian 2 July 2015
